engaged novel. and now between them has, i think, given both of them an awful lot of energy. so yes, i think it is not entirely true to say what i said. i just thought it was worth saying once. [applause] but i won't say it again. [applause] i think it can be created. you might write a poem in response to another poem. we're just working in a conversation in a way. poets do that quite a lot. you are continuing to collect discussion. i also think that writers spend a lot of time alone and we really like hanging out with each other. we don't want to make too many enemies.

, giving energy that is not entirely true. i thought it was worth saying once. [laughter] i will not say it again. [laughter] >> it cannot be creative. like him as a poet he may write a poem in response to another poem you continue the conversation. poets of do that a lot to argue do not agree that continues the conversation. we don't want to hang out with each other and make too many enemies. [laughter] >> last question? >> i am curious about the purpose of biography or how much the biographer influences his or her choice but how they approach it is. >> there are multiple purposes. to a certain extent is the person riding the biography. inevitably, when trying to get answers to questions, i think if somebody writes about henry james who is gay, they may look at that aspect to understand a secrecy, and covering, emotions, a translating into the argument. how do they do that in to a creative way? with the daily task of raising children to be a wife, lover? part of what people do is basically use people who were well known or have written things that come value as a guide to life. but ofte
